Hiking the Appalachian Trail in Vermont

Bromley Mountain Bridge

This weekend, I was part of a women’s group that enjoyed two days of hiking in the Green Mountains of Vermont. On Saturday we took to the Appalachian Trail, climbing to the summit of Bromley Mountain, on the mountain’s back side. The hike up was 3.5 miles long, ending in meadows that are ski runs down the front side. The top was very cold and windy, so we found shelter in an old fire tower for eating lunch, before climbing back down the mountain. We passed some “real” Appalachian Trail hikers, and day hikers of all ages, some with dogs and small children.
